I don't know where to start about this place! I arrived stressed out and left a different person. Everybody writes reviews about how incredible Monty and Adilia are, and with good reason. They welcome you into their home and their family, nothing is too much trouble. I went with my sister who is basically a pro surfer, and despite the... More

This place was spectacular! I went into it really wanting to surf, and that is exactly what we did. Monty and Adilia are warm, welcoming people. You instantly feel part of their surfing family. They have a beautiful tree top compound that has an amazing view of the jungle and mountains in the distance. The scenery of Nosara is simply... More

This program is facilitated by two of the warmest most dedicated people I have ever met. They're serious about surfing and makes each guest there feel as though they can be a real surfer. The instruction is excellent; each teacher gets to know you personally and adapts their way of teaching to your specific style. They take you in fully... More

So this was my second visit to both Nosara & Surf Bikini Retreat. Often you wonder if you can recreate the magic of a trip that literally blew your mind and was a 10/10 already...bringing in tow with me my sister and friend, both of whom had been excitedly convinced by myself that they had to experience the all-round stoke...

I have to agree with the other reviewers that Monty and Adilia are very sweet people and genuinely want their guests to have a good stay. I can appreciate that but also think there have been many things that have not been said simply because they are "a lovely couple." I believe it is important for travelers to understand what...

I had the most amazing time at the Surf Bikini Retreat and will definitely be going back again. Monty and Adilia are incredible hosts and really take care of every need you might have. I spent 2 weeks with them and just had the best time at the lodge, meeting other awesome people, eating wonderful food and having the most... More

What a wonderful place to visit while in Nossara. It's absolutely breath taking being able to wake up in the mornings and look out over the mist covered mountains from your cabina while watching the sun rise. The cabinas are just the right size and add to your tropical island feel while staying at the Surf Bikini Retreat. Not only... More

I spent 10 days at Surf Bikini Retreat and it exceeded all my expectations. This is where you want to be if you want to learn to surf, feel safe, have fun, eat great food, be surrounded by good people and positive vibes. Monty and Adilia will bend over backwards to make sure you are having the time of your... More

My first solo adventure. What a perfect place to start! Surf Bikini couldn't have been a better place to meet some amazing new friends in a safe environment, and learn so much about surfing and the "Pura Vida" Costa Rican culture. Mony and Adilia are some of the most genuinely kind people I have ever met. Bringing me, and the... More

I came across Bikini Surf Women Retreat via many extra turns and loop ways and have to say, I am soooo glad I chose this place more out guts feeling and their key selling point free transfer from SJO or LIR airport. It was my first time in Costa Rica, and already during the transfer time from SJO my personal... More
